Lately there is one thing that has caught my attention and that is - Augmented Reality & it's numerous possibilities. Year 2018 was predicted as the year of the AR and then early 2019 predictions proclaimed it all to be a hype and then again come Q1 2019, AR seems back in the limelight. In my opinion, the immersive technologies AR/VR/XR are here to stay. They are going to change the way we look and interact with things. In fact, it is now said that the AR & VR market is going to grow to $170 billion by 2022. So let me help you come up to speed on AR.
